Mercia’s sorry but the party’s over; says she’s nothing special and there’s nothing much to see. But dig deeper and her home is as old as the hills. As her strange story trickles out, it seems she’s just been keeping her treasures close to her chest.
A funny, inspiring solo performance about home, underdogs, Midlands spirit and everything we miss.
